C. Rustice'llius Felix
an African, and a maker of small figures, is known by his epitaph, which was found at Rieti, according to Fabretti (Inscr.
p. 243, No. 669), or at Borghetto, near Otricoli, according to Gruter, who also gives the artist's name in a different form, Tudicilius
(Gruter, p. mxxxv. No. 3; Orelli, Inscr. Lat. Sel.
It is remarkable that the inscription the describes the artist as Sigillariarius,
which R. Rochette chette explains as derived from Sigillare,
a word synonymous with sigillum ;
but perhaps it is only a mistake of the stone-cutter. (R. Rochette, Lettre à M. Sehorn,
p. 399, 2d ed.)
